, but he's turning it over to his new secretary of state. >> john kerry is very interested in pursuing this. they knows the region very well, and president obama said, fine -- in a way this trip -- this is an unusual trip in that president obama is advancing the secretary of state, who is here right now, but will be coming back pretty frequently, so president obama is not going to -- he's going to talk about the palestinian issue in his business speech tomorrow, i think, but bakley he's trying to set the stage to reset the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts
of the prison and afghan prisoners at bagram. the ceremony took place after secretary of state john kerry met with the afghan president. karzai accused the u.s. recently of company lookedding with the taliban to undermine his government. he insisted as a matter of nothing samplety that the u.s. seized control of the prison and it's prisoners. the u.s. has been reluctant to give up control prisoners included taliban leaders. with president obama planning to end the u.s. combat role by the end of 2014 and the new security deal and an afghan president still pending kerry said this: >> you i think stand on the brisk of a remarkable legacy for having brought afghanistan through an amazingly difficult time. i believe that the roadmap ahead is going to be very clear and constructive. john: what happens to the prisoners who were tortured and those still held. we are joined by glenn grenwold. what a pleasure to have you back on the show. >> great to be back. >> the prison, what kind of place is it, what human rights abuses have taken place there and how is the u.s. supposed to be involved? >> it's as
chances in the state department have improved now that john kerry is secretary of state. >> yeah, kerry has been a long time climate spokesman, and if this fight is taken with a climate change context, then we would hope that kerry would say no. >> bill: since he has been secretary of state he hasn't said anything. >> no, he has been a little bit busy over in syria. >> bill: he has. will he say here is our report, and here is what i think you ought to do? >> well, the law could be interpreted either way. my guess is that kerry will be involved and there will be substantial conversations that happen with the white house and kerry. >> bill: ed mar i can has been another champion on environmental issues. he has been way out in front on global warming. he is going to be the democratic nominee, it looks like for the senate seat up there. what -- what difference could he make? he is still talking about it, right? >> yeah, he has been outspoken opponent of the tar sands. so i imagine this will continue to be an issue in his election race. >> bill: are you making it an i
demanding from secretary of state john kerry. he will break that news here with us momentarily. >> he kept saying, does daddy not love us anymore? does daddy not want to hear our voice anymore? and i have to tell them that he was in prison because he loved jesus. and that he loved them very much. bill: get ready nor a -- for a new confirmation battle. betweennal mccarthy, president obama's nominee to run the environmental protection agency, the epa under fire for a batch of e-mails just out. doug mckelway seeing some of them this morning. >> reporter: good morning. former admin straight tore of the epa lisa jackson maintained a separate e-mail account under the name richard windsor to conduct official business. when the epa refused to turn over e-mails a court ordered them to do so. assistant administrator for gene ma mccarthy up for the top job at epa these e-mails are garnering close scrutiny. senators inhofe pan adler to the epa, quote, we're the deeply troubled the practice of administrator jackson alias e-mail account of richard windsor the concern which iraware. we uncovered many ins
and secretary of state in john kerry. and i think they're going to have them cease and desist from the aggressive tactics they're they think and turn this situation into one where the government begins to listen to the people on the street and gives them an opportunity to say what they have to say and try to reduce this level of violence. i don't think it would make any sense right now, for the united states to cut off all aid. we would lose influence if we did that. better to use american influence in this very important country behind the scenes which the administration i think is doing. >> megyn: it's supposed to be a new day when morsi ascended and the muslim brotherhood said they'd never seek the presidency, turned out not to be true. it's supposed to be a new day. and dozens of islamists protesting outside of tv studios that are independent and critical of morsi and that's not the direction we were opening to go in, ambassador bolten. what do you think we're doing behind the scenes? president obama hasn't spoken on this publicly yet, nor has secretary kerry, i believe, so wha
kerry there talking. president obama is supposed to be awarded the medal of distinction at this dinner. when that happens, we will bring it to you live. again, live pictures there as the president awaits the medal of distinction. martin fletcher is standing by in jerusalem with the very latest for us. good to see you, sir. let's start with the president's speech. how was it received, both in the hall and how was it received by israelis watching it on television? >> reporter: well, i think, craig, it was received very well indeed. surprisingly well. he spoke so clearly and confidently and i think really hit all the points that israelis wanted to hear. one of the surprising things, the reaction of the 600 students from universities around israel that were in the audience, was that they applauded repeatedly. there were several standing ovations. most surprising to me anyway, the more often president obama called for a palestinian state existing in peace alongside israel, the more often he said that, the greater the applause was for the students. it was a real message not only from preside
to pespearhead the effor to form a coherent syrian opposition council. now you've got secretary kerry, deeply involved in that effort as well. we're providing not just advice, not just words, but we're providing resources, training, capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and to be able to provide direct services to people inside of syria, including the kinds of relief efforts that obviously we're seeing here in jordan. but there are a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarymilit. i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in situation where it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily and if it doesn't go in militarily. then people say why aren't you doing something militarily? and my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multi laterlat context, in an international context, becaus
, and congressman franks signing a letter to the secretary of state, john kerry, for more involvement. i'll get to the congressman in a moment, but jordan, how is his health, and what have you learned about him? >> well, bill, we know for the first time that pass tar said has -- pastor said has gotten a medical review, and he was promised he would be move today a hospital outside of the prison. this all happened this week, though there's no indication when he will be moved, and we don't trust iran until it happens. but at least there was a medical review confirming what we've been talking about, the internal breeding and the refusal to treat that with anything more than just, basically, tylenol. bill: you know, jordan, i'm wondering, are the iranians listening to you? because you and others have been on this publicly for some time now. >> i think when you look at all of the actions that have taken place the congressional hearing, all of the media buildup of to that hearing, the silence from the state department, and now we can report part two. after the congressional hearing, after 550,000 peop

to senator kerry and i know we have a group heading off to poland on monday to talk about this further. i applaud it as i mentioned. i do hope we will focus on a base on the eastern side with radar facilities. and i think the question is, chris, how does the nondeplowment of the fourth phase of our european based issues it temperature affect us over time. there is technical issues we will be getting into this week with the the pentagon and the state department but certainly i think most all of us applaud the efforts to beef up our missile defense on the west coast chris do you think that kim young unand the north koreans are a threat to the u.s. >> i don't think they have the mechanism to really harm us. i think it puts us in a different place as it relates to negotiating with them. at the end of the day, chris, i know there is a lot of talk, six party talks, all kind of things that are occurring. all of us understand the key to this is going to be china. they are the ones that can affect the behavior of north korea because of the trade issues and certainly support issues coming from chin
voted to authorize the use of force. some apologized later like john kerry. some brave people came out against it as you showed. barbara boxer, dick durbin, paul wellstone, but there is a tendency among democrats that really worries me. it's to act as though maybe their patriotism is possibly going to be called into question and they're always appeasing these bullies who question their very americanness and we saw that over and over at 9/11 and particularly in the run-up to war. it was a little bit frightening to be against the war as i was. we weren't really singled out and ridiculed, but we were right. they will go down in history as having done the wrong thing. it requires a lot of vigilance to make sure nothing like that happens again. >> given what the congresswoman said earlier, are we still at risk despite their bold and creative witness of a march to war of this magnitude or is there more accountability today? >> we would hope so. joan is absolutely right. there's bipartisan kulpaablety that dates back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where
ahead. and that's to come. secretary state kerry will return to jerusalem tomorrow. and one can expect a new push here today. here. but it's -- >> could king abdullah play a key roll if there is in the future a u.s. led peace push? >> he's going to have to play an essential role, because the other state that has signed a peace treaty with israel is egypt. and we know from the political changes that have occurred there in the wake of the arab spring that morsi has taken a much tougher line with israel and i think it very unlikely that egypt will play a historic role in trying to help out in a peace process. so it's going to fall more on king abdullah's shoulders in jordan. and that will be a big part of president obama's discussions with the king tonight and tomorrow along with the crisis in neighboring syria. >> let's talk about syria. let's start request the fact that i think 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan. and jordan's having some economic difficulties. what's that conversation between the president and king abdullah likely to be like? >> there will be the huge humanitarian cris
, weren't supposed to. morsi trying to kill democracy. john kerry, the secretary of state, the week that obama said that the armageddon. congress said 250 million dollars and meanwhile the military which is very disturbing, not just the f-16's, but the tanks. we're not holding them accountable. i think we've got to try-- we've kept the peace with egypt and israel and we've gotten ourselves on the hook. it's not just there, we have the problem in israel, we have the problem now with the saudis in iran and we have the problem-- >> in the region. >> what i'm amazed by, you know, one of the ways that republicans succeeded was they had two pillars, the anti-government spending and national security. and i think the establishment in washington the republican-- okay, but the truth is that they have really let the national security one go. >> sean: all right. what about, i'm a little stunned, liz, i shouldn't be, but the president seems to me has an opportunity to send a loud message to the rise of radical islamists around the world. he's going to snub the knesset, and not going to visit th
for the internal bleeding. >> naghmeh, what has the state department, secretary of state, john kerry and the president, have they done what is needed or do you want more from them? >> as we discussed in the hearing, the congressional hearing, it's always been a reactive, any statements, anything done have been more answer to a question and we're expecting more of a proactive effort on their part and the statements coming from them in regard to saeed being released and his violation of religious freedom and the way he's being treated. >> we hear reports that he's being tortured and beaten while in prison. i'm curious in the secretary of state did make another-- during the confirmation hearing did make a statement. what is the difference? iran is not impressed with us in any fashion anyway. having the secretary say something else. >> the more commentary, the media, interviews we've done and leaders spoken out the better treatment he's received. now he was moved to a better ward at one point. now he's saying he's got doctors at least reviewing his problems and told he can go to a hospit
of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most of the folks from the bush administration, myself. but i do think that someone like dick cheney did not fundamentally seek to expand american influence, you know, imperialistically or go for big oil profits for
. >> can i say having done this with howard dean after john kerry lost, it is not, a, it is not just again, you have to understand the obvious about where your flaws are, but you also have to go to the whole party, say we have to figure out how to be a true party, what are our values and policies, how are we dealing with candidates that may not agree with us on certain policy issues knowing here is where the electorate is. that's not what's happening. this is more let's do brutally honest, obvious to the rest of us, also let's say sh, we are not talking about those things. we have seen the polling, gets us in trouble, put lipstick on this, put a bow on that, and say we're a brand new party. that's not how it works. you can put all the organizers in iowa you want for four years. if you're not able to communicate through values and policies people agree with, it doesn't matter. >> michael steele, saw him on this network today saying that what you're watching is certain republicans are going out there and trying new ideas out there in the marketplace of ideas, and this is the way it should ha

thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis
